EXHIBITION SPONSOR

Mibet Energy Website

As one of the biggest manufacturers of floating solar systems, Mibet Energy is devoting itself to offer high-grade floating solar systems since 2014.

With its professional and international R&D team, Mibet Energy plays a leading role in developing the technology of floating solar system s with an anchoring system, floaters for cables, centralized-inverters and transformers. The system has evolved from the first generation to the latest fifth generation named G4N, which has been accredited by international standards certificates like NSF water quality test, TUV aging test and wind tunnel test. It adopts HDPE as the material for the floater and has an unique installation method between the front support and back support.
Mibet G4N floating system has captured the attention of the market and gained great reputation among the clients home and abroad, which paves the way to establish Mibet Energy as a trustworthy brand in the solar PV floating industry. In the future, Mibet Energy will continue to join hand in hand with clients to mark another milestone in the development of floating solar system.



With the Zim Float System, we offer a large-scale, east-west orientated floating photovoltaic (PV) system.

The system is completely integrated and includes inverter boats, gangways and maintenance walkways, cable ducts, and wave barriers. The ZIM Float is supported on ‘solar boats’ connected to each other to various sizes of the system. The combination of high-strength solid steel beams and high-density polyethylene floaters are the basis of a stable, durable, and scalable system. The steel beams are protected by a unique and environmentally-friendly corrosion protection coating.

The Zim Float System offers easy and fast installation, at low maintenance costs. The system is assembled on-site and only requires a small area of land.

Integrated cable routing ensures all cables are being protected from long-term water contact and direct sunlight. This ensures the best conditions for cable strings and connectors.

To date, we have supplied floating PV mounting structures for projects with a total capacity of over 10 megawatts (MW). By the end of 2019, we expect to have installed systems with a total capacity of around 50 MW.

 

BRANDING SPONSOR

Seaflex Website

At Seaflex, we have over three decades worth of experience selling the SEAFLEX mooring system to customers all over the world. We have finished over 1700 installations in over 85 countries. We completed our first Floating Solar project in 2011 in Canoe Brook, NJ USA.

SEAFLEX is the most modern and technologically advanced mooring system on the market today, providing secure moorings even under the worst weather conditions.

The moorings are self-regulating according to variations in water level. The hawsers slowly elongate and retract in a smooth, even movement. We have successful projects with 7 meter (23 feet) tidal fluctuation as well as 35 meter (115 feet) artificial variation. SEAFLEX flexibility ensures that the solar floats are stable and not exposed to unnecessary wear. SEAFLEX mooring systems can also handle any depth. They work just as well in shallow water as deep water. Seaflex also excels in handling extreme wind conditions. We have existing installations that have successfully endured typhoons with winds exceeding 42 m/s (94 MPH). Seaflex solutions include designs for bottom and side anchoring depending on the site specifications.

Due to the long lifespan, simplified inspection process and minimal need for maintenance, using SEAFLEX as your mooring system of choice can in many cases be the cheapest option over time.

Seaflex is also an environmentally friendly solution. Since the SEAFLEX mooring system is under constant tension, it does not sway and touch the seabed at all, minimizing any effect the system has on the surrounding environment compared with the traditional mooring methods still being used in many places around the world. Furthermore, SEAFLEX does not release other pollutants into marine ecosystems, which also helps limit any impact on the surroundings.
